How Are Scores Tabulated?
The Virtual Club Championships will be tabulated annually for both the short course and long course seasons. Both Short Course Yard (SCY) and Long Course Meter (LCM) rankings will be tabulated using results achieved between September 1 and August 31.
All registered USA Swimming clubs will be scored automatically. The USA Swimming Times Database will be used in combination with the Hy-Tek Single-Year Age Group Power Point system. The program scores single age groups from 11-16 years old and has a combined 17-18 age group. After all eligible swims have been scored using the power point system, a team score for each registered USA Swimming club will be calculated. The tabulation will occur once every evening.
Are You IMXtreme?
What is IMXtreme, you ask?
IMXtreme is a program that allows USA Swimming members to track their times (or coaches to track their team’s times) against swimmers all across the nation! Just by swimming a specific program of events, you can see where you rank against your teammates, your region and yes, even across the USA! Interested? We thought so.
The IMX ranking includes a series of five or six events at longer distances. Once you’ve completed the IMX program, you can find out where your IMX score ranks nationally, within your zone, within your LSC rank and on your club.

How Do I Score Points?
Rankings in the program are based on power points, a system developed by USA Swimming and Hy-Tek. See the Power Points page for more information and to use the Power Point Calculator.
Not Quite Xtreme? Get IMReady
IM Ready is the little brother of IMXtreme, tailored toward our younger swimmers. Does 200 yards seem a little much? Then start getting “IMReady” by swimming shorter distances, and keeping track of your improvements. Compete against your teammates in this program that also lets you see yourself get faster! After all, isn’t that what it’s all about? Learn More.
IM Ready (IMR)
The first step in the IMX Challenge is IM Ready (or IMR). To get “IM Ready,” swimmers compete in a series of five events at shorter distances. Below, we’ve listed the line-up by age groups.
- 9 & Under; 10-year olds: 100 Free, 50 Back, 50 Breast, 50 Fly, 100 IM (SC) or 200 IM (LC)
- 11-year olds; 12-year olds: 200 Free, 50 Back, 50 Breast, 50 Fly, 100 IM (SC) or 200 IM (LC)
- 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, & 18-year olds: 200 Free, 100 Back, 100 Breast, 100 Fly, 200 IM
Once you’ve swum each event at least once at an official meet, you can log-in to your USA Swimming Account, and find out where you rank against all the other swimmers on your club team.
Note About IMX & IMR Scores
An IMX or IM Ready score is only established after a swimmer has swum all of the events required for their age group in a sanctioned meet since the start of the current season; both short and long course seasons start September 1 and end August 31 for IMX/IMR purposes.
How Do I Participate?
Participation in the IMR and IMX is easy. USA Swimming automatically scores and calculates results for all athlete members! Swimmers only need to sign up for a My USA Swimming Account, then compete in each required event, at a sanctioned meet, at least once in a season.
Additionally, a swimmer must complete all of the events in the same course (SCY or LCM) to have a score in that particular course.
Parents please take the Safe Sport Parent Education course it is about keeping your swimmers as safe as possible. You will need the following information to sign in:
» LSC – Middle Atlantic Swimming
» Club Code – your swimmers club abbreviation
» Safe Sport Handbook
Thanks in advance for helping to provide a safer environment for our athletes!
